into his second term, president obama officially took on the issue of immigration today. he said it comes down to a simple question: whether the coury and the government have the resolve, finally, to deal with the long-festering national challenge. the president launched his effort in nevada where more than a quarter of the state's residents are hispanic. >> i'm here today because the time has come for common sense, comprehends i have been immigration reform.

point, does it make? >> suarez: president obama, gave her high praise in a joint interview sunday with cbs's "60 minutes." >> i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of states we've had. it has been a great collaboration over the last four years. ( cheers and applause ) >> suarez: clinton said her immediate goal is to catch up on "20 years of sleep deprivation". as for any political aspirations, she hasn't made any intentions known. but an independent super-pac has been created to support her with hopes that she'll run again for president in 2016. meanwhile, clinton's successor, former massachusetts senator john kerry, was sworn in at a private ceremony this afternoon and starts work monday. for more on hillary clinton's legacy, we turn to two long-time foreign policy watchers. trudy rubin is the worldview columnist at the "philadelphia inquirer"; and susan glasser is executive editor of "foreign policy" magazine. >> well, trudy rubin, you heard the president just a moment ago say that hillary clinton was a great success as secretary of state, was she? >> i think it

, which they claimed as a victory >> president obama has consistently said he'd refuse to negotiate around the debt ceiling. his strategy is vindicated now that the republicans have backed off their threats to take the nation into a default. the president stared down the republicans. they blinked. >> ifill: congress still faces other fiscal fights. automatic spending cuts are due to kick in on march first, and funding for the government runs out march 27. so, can the republican party use fiscal issues to regain its footing? for more on the political fights ahead we turn to susan page, washington bureau chief for "u.s.a. today." and stuart rothenberg of the "rothenberg political report" and "roll call." chuck schumer just said the republicans brinked. did they blink, susan, and does it matter they did? >> hin a big recalbraigz on their part. they find themselves on the defensive when it comes to the debt ceiling issue. remember how they vowed they would only raise the debt ceiling by a dollar for every dollar cut in spending. now they said never mind. we'll push that down the road. the big

senate today? >> you know, when i look at what vice president biden and president obama put together in terms of an array of opportunities for us to crack down on gun violence in these mass killings i start again with the things that i think we can win bipartisan support for, broad support from citizens across this country who are gun owners and not gun owners alike. and so i thk there's a t we can do to pursue this issue. the universal background check being one of the first that i would talk about. on the issue of a particular weapons ban, i do think that -- obviously it has been done before and i do think if we take the care to debate this properly and do it right perhaps something can move forward. obviously very tricky politically. >> woodruff: senator women in the senate. there are now 20, more than there have ever been before. you ink th fa will change the work that the senate can get done? the kind of legislation that's passed? >> you know, i do see women in politics having a different approach to issues and i think that that's going to work well. this record number of 20 is
